Story number two has been chosen and for the next week we will be focusing on the First Doctor story, The Dalek Invasion Of Earth.

The TARDIS materialises in London sometime after the year 2164. Dalek invaders are now ruling the Earth with the aid of humans converted into zombie-like Robomen, but they are opposed by a group of resistance fighters led by the wheelchair-bound Dortmun.

The travellers discover that the Daleks have established a huge mine in Bedfordshire, their aim being to remove the Earth's core using a huge bomb and replace it with a powerful drive system so that they can pilot the planet around the galaxy. Ian manages to create a barrier in the shaft in order to intercept the bomb. The resulting explosion destroys the Daleks and their mine and creates a huge volcanic eruption.

Susan has fallen in love with resistance fighter David Campbell, and the Doctor decides to leave her on Earth to find a new life with him, while he continues on his travels with Ian and Barbara.


This is the thread where you can rate the story in our poll and discuss your ratings in the posts below.

The next story will be posted on Sunday June 26th

This gets a four from me. While its a pretty great story, it gets a little slow in the middle and I'm not the biggest fan of the Daleks. Its one of their better stories though

This, for me, was one of the most important stories in the history of the show. It showed that the Daleks were not just a one hit wonder and provided some of the most iconic moments of the classic era (think of the Daleks in London). A five all the way and a story so good that they turned it into a movie!
